Argus Hamilton HOLLYWOOD--God bless America, and how's everybody?

Donald Trump was ripped all day long by the media Tuesday two months before he even takes office. It stirred up activists coast to coast. Over the weekend in Los Angeles, I saw a nasty and violent anti-Trump rally in the Valley, but then I realized it was just the Black Friday sale at Best Buy.

NBC introduced Arnold Schwarzenegger as host of Celebrity Apprentice to affiliate TV station owners visiting the Burbank studios. It was shrewd casting. NBC executives say they realize the mistake they made last time and this time they’ve chosen a host who isn’t eligible to run for president.

The San Francisco 49ers will play the Chicago Bears at Soldiers Field in Chicago Sunday. All eyes will be on the sideline before the football game gets started. It’s rumored that the Chicago Bears will play the Cuban National Anthem in an effort to get Colin Kaepernick to stand at attention.

The White House will send a low-level delegation to Fidel Castro’s funeral Friday. His legacy has triggered immense controversy. San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick praised Fidel Castro as a great humanitarian Monday, automatically triggering the NFLs concussion protocol.

Fidel Castro in his last column praised Obama as a miracle worker for passing health care but added that Obama is a capitalist-imperialist and a lackey of Wall Street. What a wordsmith. Leave it to Castro to issue a statement that makes both Democrats and Republicans proud of President Obama.

The Hillary Clinton campaign joined Jill Stein’s recount effort in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. It’s pretty cheeky after Trump said he wouldn’t prosecute her. Now Republicans cannot wait to see which character Hillary will play in the next season of Orange is the New Black.

President-elect and billionaire Donald Trump named billionaires as secretaries of Commerce, Education and Treasury. Mitt Romney is worth a quarter-billion. That means if Mitt becomes Secretary of State he’ll have to wear a beanie and bring coffee and doughnuts to the cabinet meetings.

President-elect Donald Trump last week named Amway heiress and billionare Betsy DeVos to his cabinet as head of the Department of Education. It’s true that education is more important than ever. Kids today need to learn that if you can’t sign your name, you’ll have to always pay cash.

Dallas prosecutors filed charges against a man for using Twitter to harass and intimidate and stalk anyone he doesn’t like and everyone who has criticized him. He’s says it’s just a character he plays, and that it’s not really him. If convicted he could get four-to-eight years in the White House.

The Centers for Disease Control released a report Monday saying bees and wasps are the most dangerous animals in the U.S. We’re back. Wasps weren’t consider that dangerous for the past eight years until three weeks ago when Americans went to the polls and voted for Restoration.

President Obama started giving a series of interviews this week in which he gives a valedictory overview of his life and times. The president surprised everyone Monday by opening up in a lengthy interview to Rolling Stone magazine. No one knew he’d ever been raped in a fraternity house.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein instituted a presidential election recount in Wisconsin today, insisting that the voting machines could have been hacked. The GOP is busted. Everyone knows older white voters in rural areas who took five years to learn how to post photos on Facebook know how to hack into a secure voting system and switch just enough votes for a plausible Trump win.
